Writers have always understood hunger. Sensuous, creamy words stimulate our senses, whet our appetite. From Chaucer to Faulkner, The Literary Lunch: Recipes for a Hungry Mind looks at some of the more delicious food references throughout the history of classic literature, and turns these into real, kitchen tested recipes which can be cooked up at home. Read the prose or poetry, stimulate your senses and appetite, and then recreate the experience in an easy to make, original recipe based on the text. If you canít make your children read the classics, if you donít have time to read the full books yourself, or read them, loved them, but donít have time to re-read them, you can still experience Chaucerís Spicerye Sauce, John Lylyís plump fat leg of Mutton, Shakespearean foolís devilled eggs, Hemingwayís chicken croquettes, or Magic Mountain Macaroon and butter-cream chocolate pie.
